-Habitat: $30, included THREE hex arenas, THREE straight pieces, TWO curved ones, and, most importantly TWO nano bugs! Don't pay more than $30 for it, I've seen it on Amazon for nearly twice that.
-Starter set: $12, included ONE hex arena, TWO curved pieces, ONE nano bug.
-Single nano bug: $8.
I'd *highly* recommend the habitat set, it's the BEST value by far, assuming you don't get a horrible online price.
The starter set is not a bad deal, but it's not as much fun as the habitat.
The individual nano bugs are kind of expensive, and no way to start. Without SOME sort of habitat pieces, you're just chasing this thing around the room. But that may be fun too!
So.... what are these things?
I thought they were little robots. Turns out this is generally what HEXBUGs are, but they've been scaling them down to simpler and simpler things.
These things are completely dumb, no sensors at all. But the design is brilliant.
They have little curved rubber legs that don't move. They have an on switch. When you turn then on, they vibrate. That's it.
But that's all that's needed. They SHOOT across a flat surface, and when they hit a wall, they shoot off at at angle. They even right themselves if they are on their side or back. It's an elegant design. The result is something that looks and behaves amazingly similar to a cockroach, but simply consists of a vibrator (motor with weight), battery, and rubber legs. That's it!
The shapes of the case allows it to both bounce off of walls and right to themselves. They are unstoppable.Read more ›
The habitat keeps your bug safely contained if you keep all the doors shut. You can easily raise the orange doors to open passages for the Nanos. It is easy to connect any other habitat item. Additional passages and arenas are available to build your own habitat as big or small as you'd like.
My kids love to place a couple of Nano bugs inside to watch them scurry around. They often start them out here with open doors and see how long it takes them to escape. Please note that only the Nano bugs can be used with this habitat, the HexBugs are too large.

This was a surprise hit. Two boys, 6 and 4 both loved them. However, like it says, this is a starter set.Published 12 months ago by Opinionated
This is a great little set. It is self contained and you can watch your new bug jump around. Pretty amazing watching these bugs move in such a realistic/manic manner. Freaky! Read morePublished 12 months ago by ReadingMad100
My kid was dying for a hexbug so I got her this for Christmas. Personally, I don't see the appeal. It's a little vibrating battery that moves around the floor or its track. Read morePublished 13 months ago by k tha kool 1
My boys LOOOOOVE this bug and the others that we have. I get driven mad by listening to them being on all day. This is definitely just a fun toy to have though.Published 13 months ago by Jen
